Home Away from Home: Romanians in Brent

5 February 2018 at 12am to 3 June 2018 at 12am, The Library at Willedsen Green

This temporary exhibition is a celebration of Romanian culture in Brent and beyond. 

At its centre is a collection of ornate decorated Easter eggs on loan to Brent Museum & Archives from the Horniman Museum and Gardens through their Object in Focus programme, funded by Arts Council England. 

Brent Museum & Archives have been working in collaboration with Romanian Women in UK and the Romanian Cultural Institute to create an exhibition inspired by these decorated eggs. The display features a selection of portraits of contemporary Romanians living and working in London by photographer Ion Paciu which were shown alongside the 2014 Revisiting Romania exhibition at the Horniman.  Bringing together objects from members of the Romanian community, the exhibition will also feature eye-catching new photographs taken by photographer Mike Lupascu of Romanians in Brent.
